The news was expected for some weeks. One of the four females of the cell for conservation of the species was bearing upon his arrival in November. She was put down on Monday. According to the established formula, mother and little baby are doing well.
It is a double first. The forest Suchy, which was installed in November, a cell of conservation of the European bison, has seen the birth of Sultanaon Monday in the early afternoon. A first for the site, but simply also a first in Switzerland, within a herd in semi-freedom.
No doubt, the Association of European Bison in the forest of Suchy (ABEFS) will also mark clearly in his calendar the date of June 15, 2020 as of November 7, 2019, the day when she could welcome after thirteen long years of patience his first five cattle arrived all right to Poland.
Female carrying on her arrival
Sultana is the offspring of Poziomka II, the dominant female of the herd north of the vaud region. But not one of Poselthe only male of the small herd. Shortly after the arrival of the oxen, the ABEFS had, in fact, had the pleasant surprise to see that this old female 4-year-old was carrying since a few weeks. Either before it is in contact with Posel.
The name given to the calf female – pretty baby a small thirty pounds – should not just randomly. According to the guidelines of the EBSG (the Group for the preservation of the bison of Europe, based in Warsaw, which manages the genetic monitoring of these animals), the first two letters of the first name of the new-born must be the same as that of his place of birth. Honor of find a sequel to this “Su” original is returned to the Régie immobilière Braun Lausanne, long-standing support of the project of cell-conservation.
According to the established formula, the mother and granddaughter are doing well. Those who would like to be sure are welcome on site to Suchy, announces the ABEFS. Two conditions, however: exercise patience and to remain silent, because the herd protects them jealously Sultana.
